2 Basical Broad Approaches for Winning Souls

2 Basically Broad Approaches for Winning Souls

There are different approach in doing different things and each approach employed will yield a specific result to the employer.

In this short post, I will be highlighting two basically broad approach for winning soul to the Kingdom of heaven.

Before we go into that, consider the basic ingredients of winning souls are captured in (Psalms 126:5-6)

“They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.”

1.  The Direct Approaches: the method involves a direct question about the issue of the sinner’s soul, his relationship with God or his readiness to meet God.  Philip used this method (Acts 8:30) Jesus did the same (John 3:3). 

2.  The Indirect Approaches focuses on reaching the sinner’s heart by holding first, before his eyes physical realities and then gliding into spiritual, eternal truths.  It is generally conversational.

 Other method includes, friendship method, literature method, electronic media and after fellowship approach. Through these approaches, the soul winner will stringently, but not as hard rules, follow the under-listed procedures:

i.            Like doctor, diagnose the case with the use of questions to discovers the class the prospect (target) belongs to and how best to approach him.

ii.          Describe the disease. Sin, as a disease of the soul, must be revealed with the help of the scriptures and painted vividly enough that the sinners will discover it in himself apparently.

iii.        Prescribe the remedy.  Christ is the remedy for sin.

iv.         Warn him of the danger of delay and rejecting the truth (Isaiah 1:20; 2 Corinthians 6:2).

v.           Urge for an immediate decision.

vi.         Anchor him to the word of God for assurance.

vii.       Show him how to continue in Christ.

How important is it for me to be a soul-winner and get my converts?
